Our family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved Harry on April 27th 2013 at the age of 80 years young.
Harry was born on March 18th 1933 in Salmon Arm, BC to William and Winnifred Hopkins. At the young age of twelve Harry began his career to becoming a meat cutter. His journey led him to the Askew’s family where he worked in the meat department for 32 years. Harry genuinely enjoyed the outdoors, camping, and vacationing with his wife and family.

Harry will be deeply missed by his wife, Nora of 62 years, his five children; Barbara Bosshardt, Brenda (Aarno) Honkanen, Lawrence (Jacky) Hopkins, Shelly Schikowski and Steve (Jamie) Hopkins, his ten grandchildren and his thirteen great-grand-children; his sister, Eileen Hansen of Dawson Creek, and brother Bill Hopkins of Salmon Arm, many nieces and nephews and a host of friends.
